1: very good idea! Have to see if it can be done with the scenery inside the pieces, and then again, it fits very well into a cardbox for moving (like those Mord must have in abundance)

2: Comming around the doors, have added some 2" doors as I agree on the playability. And with openended corridors the pieces it won't matter if the doors fit eachother =)

3. I was looking at the terrain you posted in the start of this thread, and I think I will make corridors like him - with open ends (it also saves building material).

4. What a great idea! I could make "mats" to put on top and ramps! Yay! More terrain with multiuse!

Ok. I'll make a quick step by step up just now. Do you have a sponge? A suitable dark brown colour?

Ok Komfritten, I wrote it and posted it here. Hope this helps. You can substitute in whatever colours you have.

Oh man, I come back on here after a busy week or two and find this absolutely incredible start to a scenery project.

It never ceases to amaze me the speed and quality of your work among others here on the forum.

I applaud you for this, keep up the good work Smile

I just got this in with the mail! YAY for me! Endless supply of "metal grid". I had a whole group on faceboook dedicated to find this for me - and it paid off!

I'm looking forward to next week where the little one is at the daycare, and I'm on christmas vacation! BUILDING TIME!!! Oh yeah!



I'll have to uninstall SKyrim and Witcher 2 for this project - oh man those games take my time(!)

HAHAH! How do you call that material? I was looking for some... but I don't even know how to ask (much less where to look!)

This isn't the correct name for it, but it's referred to as "plastic canvas"...it's used for needle point. You can get it at Michael's in the sewing section. Quick Shape is the name of a manufacturer of the stuff; &, as the name implies, you ca get it in various sizes & shapes. What a Face

It looks like the same stuff I'm using. I have it from my Bonsai tools, if you search for "Drainage mesh" you should get some usefull results.

In the internet store i bought it, it's just called "plastic canvas" but if you ask people, they would not know what it is... But it seems that in the states Granny Grating is the word for it Wink

Not to hijak, but Mord, this stuff is in the sweing section at walmart or Michaels craft stores. It is really easy to cut and place.

Miniwargames.com call that stuff GrannyGrating.

But it is actually plastic canvas or plastic cross stitch canvas.
